Tommy and Marv serenading us…
We had our Pedal for Prevention benefit concert at The Bluebird Cafe last night in Nashville, and what a night it was! The Bluebird is a great venue, extremely intimate, it only seats around 100 people, and it provided the perfect backdrop for the “unplugged” style songwriter night. It really is a treat to hear the artists who wrote so many of Country Music’s hits tell the stories behind their songs. Tommy Lee James, Marv Green, Richie McDonald and Terry McBride (I’m sorry Terry that I listed you behind Richie!) are all incredibly talented artists and put on an engaging and beautiful show.
Tommy kicked-off the show with “Life Ain’t Always Beautiful” and some highlights were Marv and Richie’s rendition of “Amazed” and Terry’s heartfelt tribute to Willie Nelson. We were also lucky enough to have Barbara Orbison (Roy’s Wife) of Still Working Music, and Dell Bryant the head of BMI in attendance.
I was starstruck all night, and I can’t say thanks enough to Tommy for organizing the event for us, and also to Tommy, Marv, Richie and Terry for putting on such a great show! It was a perfect night all around, and we raised some money to help prevent child sexual abuse… What could be better?!
